Prince

When a super star dies, like the artist formally known as Prince, it collapses in on itself and then explodes out into the void omnidirectionally at fantastic speeds.

The ashes of a supernova, like Prince, spread out across great distances over eons of time to eventually enrich newly forming stars—stars of later generations—thereby influencing their color, their glow.

You know what I’m sayin’?

The Crab Nebula
6,500 light-years away…
